About Us

Operating in one of the densest cities in the world, NEAT Developments specialises in mixed-use developments. Our work comprises any combination of residential, commercial, and stacked industrial.

As Development Managers, we partner with investment managers, institutional funds, money managers, insurance companies, local Authority pension funds and large corporations from inception to fully let/leased through to exit.

We help maximise value add opportunities within agreed risk parameters and capture longer term value and optionality.

When you work with NEAT, you work with a team of experienced, forward-thinking professionals passionate about delivering the unrealised potential of every site. We thrive on solving complexities and challenges, and care deeply about our work and about the people who live, play and work in the buildings we create.

NEAT have become well known for expertise in large residential led mixed use developments, and are leading the way with Stacked Industrial and co-location of residential uses with industrial. We are currently engaged on one stand-alone Stacked Industrial scheme and a co-located industrial and residential scheme (Uplands). NEAT recognises the benefits of, and growing market for, Stacked Industrial in dense urban environments.

We deliver on ever challenging sites and locations, and are well versed in solving difficult legal, technical, and political challenges, all requiring very different solutions.

Regardless of scale or complexity, NEAT Developments create genuinely stand-out environments, delivering increased returns for our investors and partners, as well as contributing positively to our communities.
